Progress?

Last coin machine gone from Maine Turnpike

V'Ger:
What do they use now?

mightyace:
IIRC The article said that the coin lane was being replaced with an EZ-Pass only lane.  I think there are still attended lanes, at least at the mainline plazas.  Plus, all cash tolls are now multiples of $1 since a Feb. 1 toll increase.

Plus, over 50% of the travelers use EZ-Pass.  (Since there is a 50-60% discount for EZ-Pass, I can see why.)  Only 10% were using the coin lanes.

This is just what I read as I've never been on the Maine Turnpike.  I welcome any corrections from anyone who actually has been there.
